If u wr the chncllr

Such an extravagant use of letter in these tough times.
We need a package of measures that will reduce the bloated alphabet down to a more efficient 21 letters. Might even be able to cut back on j, h, and w if we all pull together.
replace k with c.
so that's a, e, i ,o ,u, j, h, w, x and k gone. 16. do we need as many as that? v seems a bit like it's taking us for a ride. single or double f should suffice. making 15. any others?
loads of ca$h off every day products, bare deals to be made. lots of money saved by the gvmnt - 100% guarantee it
and then i'd take that money and invest it in the UK getting some chaps out to space, maybe to mars but definitely to the moon.
i'm fucking sick of this complete lack of enthusiasm people have for space exploration, i know it's not exactly the most pressing concern but it's so. fucking. cool. who cares about your taxes and your wars when there could be MOON MEN* out there?
*i realise there are no moon men
I always thought that would be a nice little project. Like a "world peace" thing because we could use all the worlds nukes. (Only we'd hold a few back just in case.) ;)
I don't mind my grave being in space. Sounds quite elegant.
Can't be easy to have a space cremation though?
No, really. Think of all the jobs we'd create building space rockets, think of how much public pride we'd create sticking someone on Saturn or some shit. We could run endless montages on the BBC of Brian Cox staring beatifically into the great beyond, a single tear running down his cheek. That alone would get Britain over the hump.
ITV would go with fix you
For this scene I need to illustrate how big the universe is with grains of sand so I need a beach... what's that?... southend?... no not southend ...
when he was introducing his deadly African desert coast was "at least it's not Portsmouth"
then maybe "cut through all the bullshit".
tax on puffy directing pants
nuke the whales
and i'm prepared to sacrifice the whales for that tax, so count me in.
OK so no one likes my suggestions, so instead I will point to others.
What do you think of this
The government could have nationalised the bankrupt banks, written off their debts and gotten the Bank of England / Treasury to refinance them with new 'debt free' money that they could have simply created. Without adding to inflation because the new 'debt free' money would just replace the hole left behind by the bankrupted banks"
